Lil Kim Celebrates Finishing ‘Queen Bee’ Memoir

Lil Kim has lived several lives in her long and storied career — and now, she’s revealed that she’ll be telling them all in her new memoir.

Taking to Twitter on Monday (July 31), the Queen Bee posted a photo of a manuscript of her upcoming memoir, which is appropriately titled The Queen Bee, and revealed that it’d finally been turned into the publisher.


“It’s been a long journey beehive, edits are finally done [raised hands emoji],” she wrote. “Thank you to my bestie/soulmate @themarcjacobs for doing my forward.”

Check out the tweet below.

According to a press release by the publisher, Hachette Books — which is a division of Hachette Livre, the third-largest publisher in the world and the largest publisher in France — The Queen Bee will be released in September 2025. In addition to a foreword by Marc Jacobs, The Queen Bee was co-written by longtime music journalist Kathy Iandoli.

The book will detail “her complicated high-profile relationships, the misogynistic industry she fought to change through sex positivity, the challenging double standards of self-image and beauty in the spotlight, and the momentous act of loyalty that ultimately landed her in prison,” per the press release.

As a modern Hip Hop icon, Lil Kim continues to get her fair share of flowers, as she deserves.

Last month, Coi Leray revealed that she wants to make history by gathering as many female rappers as she can for a 2023 version of Lil Kim‘s 1997 classic, “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix).”


In a series of tweets on June 13, the New Jersey star pointed to the recent news that there has not been a rap song to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2023 – and shared her plans to change that.

“Ain’t been a number one rap song at all this year,” she wrote. “Calling all the female rappers to front. Hear me out. Ladies night. Hip-hop. Unity.”


When a fan responded that the abundance of current female rappers would call for up to part 30 of the song to include them all, Coi Leray had an idea. “Some of us can share verses. Split it up. Back and forth. Ad-libs,” she said.
